Not to toot my own horn, but I'm not half bad at woodworking.I recently carved a grip out of birdseye maple for my tokarev pistol. I've seen online that many wood Tok grips sell for $80-100, however, those ones are CNC machined. If I was going to make some hand made grips and sell them for say $40-50 per set, would any of you guys (or girls) be interested in them. Even if your not, would anyone else be you think. I'd give any member of NGF like 20% or so, and they'd be for sale on ebay. Just throwining it out there

Sounds like a plan. Figure out what your time is worth, however, and factor that in. To sell them at $50 would mean no more than an hour of my time involved per set.

CMonster, I'm not entirely sure I understand your post (not in a mean way at all). I might of been a little confusing in my first post and want to clarify. I was asking whether or not any of you thought it was worth my time to do this and try to sell them, not whether or not anyone would help. Once again, I'm just a little confused by what you said, "$50 would mean no more than an hour of my time involved per set". Can you please clarify? I'm not asking for any help, you might of misunderstood my poorly written post, sorry about my writing skills :)

I was unclear, apparently. What I meant was that if you are planning to do this and turn a profit from it, you need to account for your time in your cost calculations. If *I* was going to make one, the above value would be my baseline for figuring costs. And trust me, you don't want my help. *S*

Yes, make them.

CMonster, thanks for the very helpful response, I think I am gonna make some. Also, please don't think I was being rude, I honestly didn't understand. I think it's very kind of you to help me out. John

I'm not sure what the Tokarev grip market is up to these days. Might try it on a special order basis before you make up a barrel of them.
